Welcome
 

Welcome to the Rotary Club of Dripping Springs web site.  We invite you to take a look around our site and to find out more about our club and about Rotary International.  If, after considering what we offer you and the community, you would like to look into membership, please consider contacting us here.  If you are interested in speaking for the club, please contact us here.

The Rotary Club is a service organization focusing on local and international needs.  Locally, we have sponsored projects such as a multi-year character building program at a local elementary school, construction of concession and restroom facilities at the local sports park, construction of therapeutic gardens at a local assisted living facility, construction of picnic area improvements for the Dripping Springs Chamber of Commerce, supporting the local food bank, and helping a local center for disadvantaged youths with repairs and improvements.  We also put on an annual tribute to veterans on Veteran's Day.  To pay for all of this we raise funds through dues, and various fund raisers.

 We meet at Flores Mexican Restaurant two miles or so east of Dripping Springs on 290, Mondays at noon.  We conduct club business, have some social time for the members and have a variety of speakers about local and broader issues of interest. We occasionally have a social event, including our annual Officer Induction Dinner and a Christmas Party.  All of our activities are open; we have no secrets and we are proud of who we are.  We enjoy our Rotary membership and seek to support our community and the greater good through service.  After all, the motto of Rotary is "service above self," and we seek to embody that.

If these types of activities appeal to you, then we invite you to consider applying for membership in The Dripping Springs Rotary Club.  As Hays County enters into an exciting time of unparalleled growth the opportunities and need for our services are expanding.  We hope to continue growing our club to meet the challenge.

John Germ: Champion of Chattanooga
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian Just before John Germ dropped by, Rick Youngblood took a deep breath. “You want to match his energy,” he says, “but he makes it hard to keep up.” Youngblood is the president and CEO of Blood Assurance, a regional blood bank in Chattanooga, Tenn., that Germ helped found in 1972. After his visit with Youngblood, Germ strode between mountains of empty bottles and cans at Chattanooga’s John F. Germ Recycling Center at Orange Grove, which he designed, before he drove to a construction site and popped a cork to dedicate a Miracle League field where special...
Member Spotlight: The book on Brad Rubini
From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian When Brad Rubini was reading a bedtime story to his seven-year-old daughter, Claire, she asked him why he was reading the words wrong. “I’m dyslexic, so I thought I was reading the words right,” recalls Rubini, a past president of the Rotary Club of Toledo, Ohio. After he explained his problem, she began to read to him on most nights instead. “She was a voracious reader and storyteller. She was always telling stories, even when she was a toddler,” he says. Three years later, while Claire was away at summer camp, she died unexpectedly as a result of a...
